When someone close to you dies, there is no right nor wrong way to grieve.

Bereavement affects everyone differently. However you are feeling, we’re here to support you in whatever way best meets your needs. Please don’t face your bereavement alone.

Bereavement Support The First Twelve Months

The death of someone close can be one of the most devastating and overwhelming experiences that will ever happen to you….

Living with Grief – The first twelve months

Our Group Activities

While grief is a natural part of life, when someone you love dies it can also be a difficult and devastating experience. Please know we are here to listen and support you during this time. We can offer support to anyone over 18 who has been bereaved by cancer. Please contact us either by phone or e mail to chat to one of the nurses. We can then discuss with you the support we offer and what you need. This support may be appointments with our counsellor or nurse to talk about how you are feeling, coming along to one of our group activities e.g yoga, or have a complimentary therapy.
